Four of Raleigh’s most versed musicians formed Maj Deeka in early 2018 when Evan Bost asked his good friend and musical mentor Andy Blair to join the rhythm section of Matt Kirk and Ryan Masecar for a dynamic jam that traversed musical styles and emotions seamlessly. The group proved to be a natural fit, and a high-octane quartet was born.
Maj Deeka exhibits all the qualities needed in a prolific jam band: a collective ear for interesting harmony and melody, a rock-solid groove, chops on hand when the music calls for notes, and the time-earned sensibility of knowing how to take a piece of music and make it bigger than the sum of its parts.
Having recently celebrated their 1 year bandiversary, Maj Deeka has been on a 75° trajectory since the band’s inception, seemingly reaching new milestones with every show. At a late 2018 performance supporting national touring act Ghost Light, the band debuted original material with hair raising three-part vocal harmonies, contemplative lyrics, dense composition, and lightning hot improvisation. Several months later while supporting Asheville based Dr. Bacon, Maj Deeka emanated explosive energy and creativity from the first note, playing directly off the relatively unfamiliar crowd’s interaction like it was their thousandth show.
Maj Deeka’s second year is marked by bigger stages, new original tunes, and new cities, and the only certainty is that no one, including the band, knows what they might pull off next.
